As a board member, I am in the unique position of helping shape and implement new programs, helping Shawn and Justin continue to help our veterans and their families, and making sure that everything we do is what is best and safest for our members. Being on-page with our members, I get to watch the thinking process, see knowledge being shared, see the written evidence that someone else found a suggestion intriguing enough to pursue, or hearing from someone who's already used that idea and used it successfully. The almost constant learning and education process we have on-page is different but effective. I'm so proud to be a part of Military with PTSD as both a board member and an admin. While we do have 'I'm human, I made a mistake' moments, like with our fireworks signs, we do our absolute best to learn everything we can from our successes and mistakes so that we can continue to grow and continue to make the best possible decisions in and for the future.

My experience with the Founders of this nonprofit are that they are incredibly kindhearted and generous with their efforts to help those who really need it. I can't speak highly enough of what they are doing to help veterans. I wish them all the best in growing their charity organization!

Not good. I liked the idea at first, but what started as possible good intentions has turned into a quest for recognition and notoriety. Very sad.....

These people misrepresent themselves and actual veterans with PTSD. Their whole organization is built on lies. It's shameful.

Please look at this site to see the allegations and evidence against the organization. They are currently under multiple state and federal investigations at this time. Please be careful in uploading your documentation to this organization-not only is it not necessary, it is being uploaded to an unsecure site that is shared with their children and game devices.
Also see this site for an interview with another of their former admins and combat veteran--http://www.breachbangclear.com/combat-vet-yard-signs-follow-up/

I have followed this page for a few years and questioned some of their tactics regarding their status and categorizing themselves as mental health and counseling. I am glad to see that all of this is finally coming out. IRS fraud-making fake profiles-fake suicide attempts by those accounts are just a few other issues. I pray that no other veteran will be scammed by this organization.

How come 15 out of the 20 5-Star ratings are being generated from the same IP address? Hmmm

First thought that comes to mind F*R*A*UD
Second thought that comes to mind F*A*K*E C*H*A*R*I*T*Y
Third thought that comes to mind S*H*A*M*E*F*U*L

I am very conflicted as to what I want to see happen to Justin and Shawn. On one hand I want them shut down NOW to stop the horrible damage they are inflicting. Then on the other hand I want them to continue in order to gather as much evidence as possible. They are in scramble mode right now .

This non-profit is a scam and a danger to veterans. They 'help' only those they want too, and have purposely induced, severe PTSD responses from myself and possibly others. I am scared to think of how their actions have affected many veterans on the verge of suicide. I am full belief that this site should be taken down a charges filed against the owners.

I would have given 0 stars if allowed. I warn anyone who has dealing with the administrators of this organization. The owner is constantly asking for donations or money from Veterans with promises to provide them with a service, and the service never happens. This organization has done nothing for Veterans, but steal their money. There is not one action this organization can prove they have accomplished anything towards helping Veterans, but to manipulate them or their families. There is factual paperwork proof of their scams though. Please beware and stay away from this organization and Facebook page.

I am an actual licensed therapist who works with PTSD every day. I am not only angry about the information that they have had revealed, buy I am concerned about the danger this organization poses to Veterans with PTSD. So many take their lives while battling PTSD, and the leaders of this group rroutinely get into fights and cause nore problems for Veyerans seeking them out for help. It would be no suprise to learn that this group helped to contribute to a situtation that led to a suicide. This group turns away help offered by professionals, yet lists their site as a "Mental Health" facility. This needs to be shut down and charges filled against their leaders.

We report suicidal content to Facebook and have at times involved law enforcement by us calling our self. We also give them the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline, a 24/7 hotline, at 1-800-273-TALK (8255).
